IUA brings a softer side to crispy, creeky, abrasive electronic music through the bright and hazey baths of noise and percussion that deliever his distinct vocals and melodies. A graceful slow motion momentum reiterated by smooth rhythms, airy instrumentation, scattered piano, guitar, and moments of breezy noise pop.
The title – derived from the 3 common sounds of speech spanning all languages – perhaps lends itself to Mike Shusta’s vocals which are not in all instances phonetically cohesive or clear, yet leaving no question of or distraction from their emotive slant and importance.
‘Over the Archway Remixes’ accompanies this release – a collection of remixes featuring Aghost, Khonnor, Octopus Inc., Proswell, and Wankersunited – which can be found here.
